This Palpatine action figure was released in
2007 in The Anniversary Collection.
It was exclusively available at Target.
Hasbro gave the figure seven joints and included
four accessories (soft-goods sith robe, 2 blue force lightning pieces, exchangable right hand with lightsaber attached).
Here is what we noticed when we took a closer look at the Sith:
- Emperor Palpatine was released in set 1 of 6 of the Order 66 2-packs together with Clone Commander Thire
- The figure is a re-release of the ROTS Emperor Palpatine action figure from 2005, but instead of a second head, Hasbro included a sith robe
- The soft-goods sith robe fits OK over the figure
- The lightsaber hilt is wrong and doesn't look like what Palpatine's lightsaber looked like in Revenge Of The Sith
- The lightsaber is permanently attached to the right hand
- Hasbro included an extra right hand which is not holding a lightsaber
- Both blue force lightning pieces can be attached well to the wrists
- When the figure is pressed down, the right arm moves up and down (Lightsaber Attack!)
- Palpatine's body is one solid piece of plastic, so it's a surprise that the figure leans a little bit to the left
- The figure stands OK without help from a stand
The articulation details are as follows: swivel neck, 2 swivel arms, 2 swivel elbows, 2 swivel wrists
